Project description

The code is distributed under terms of the Zope Public License version 2.1. See also LICENSE.txt.

Z3locales is a library which translates dates in Zope 2 to the current user language using Zope 3 technology.

Those functions are available in the module localdatetime:


Return the current date formatted and translated in the current user language. The target user language is determined via the provided request.

get_formatted_date(date, size="full", request=_marker, locale=_marker, display_time=True)

Take a date (should be a tuple (year, month, day[, hour[, minute[, second]]]) or a Python datetime object), format it and translate it in the target user language (determined via locale or the given request). The modifier size and display_time can be used to change the output.

get_month_names(request=_marker, locale=_marker, calendar='gregorian')

Return a list of month names translated in the target language (determined via locale or the given request).

get_month_abbreviations(request=_marker, locale=_marker, calendar='gregorian')

Return a list of month abbreviations (usually the first three letters) translated in the target user language (determined via locale or the given request).


Return the locale representing the target user language using the provided request. This locale can be used after by other functions of this package.
